Optical parametric oscillation beyond 6.3µm in periodically-poled lithium niobate

Optical parametric oscillation beyond 6.3µm in periodically-poled lithium niobate
Optical parametric oscillation beyond 6.3µm in periodically-poled lithium niobate
Periodically poled lithium niobate has long been considered a very reliable material for use in optical parametric oscillators operating out to the absorption edge at ~4.5µm. The very high gains achieved when using mode-locked pulses to synchronously pump such devices, however, permit oscillation even with strong idler absorption. We present an analysis of operation under such conditions. Calculations indicate that operation to ~7µm should be possible. Oscillation at idler wavelengths out to 6.3µm has been observed.

Abstract

Periodically poled lithium niobate has long been considered a very reliable material for use in optical parametric oscillators operating out to the absorption edge at ~4.5µm. The very high gains achieved when using mode-locked pulses to synchronously pump such devices, however, permit oscillation even with strong idler absorption. We present an analysis of operation under such conditions. Calculations indicate that operation to ~7µm should be possible. Oscillation at idler wavelengths out to 6.3µm has been observed.
